    One of the guys who has a good track record with predictions is saying the 6 will stick with 1gb RAM. I'm generally not a specs are everything sort of guy, but, ios 7 seems to need every bit of the 1gb the current phone has, often it seems to need a bit more. I can't help but feel it's silly to not bump it up to 2 for the 6.

    Anyone hear any credible reports of a bump to 2? Or do you think 1 should be enough? Even if, as reported, it may be a newer, more efficient type of RAM.

    Yes, this is all just rumor and speculation, I know that, this is, unless I'm mistaken, a forum with the word rumor in the domain name. :)

    Still, I'm curious to hear what people think about the RAM in the next iphone.

    Source?

    IMO, it will be bumped to 2GB as it's easier than fixing all the memory leaks.

    Bumping the RAM won't help if there are lots of memory leaks.

    Looking back,

    3gs -> 4 upgrade from 256 mb to 512 mb
    4s -> 5 upgrade from 512 mb to 1 gb
    So 5s -> 6 should be 1 gb to 2 gb or maybe 1,5 gb

    Slim chance apple not upgrading the internal ram.
